Allie is our first generation Goldendoodle (F1). Her dad was a dark apricot registered standard poodle. Her mom an English Golden Retriever. She's 3 years old and is our family pet. She's the sweetest, most gentle, and friendliest dog. She's also really smart and learns very quickly.
"Pard" is a registered Apricot Standard Poodle. His registered name is "Gambling on a Hunting Partner". He lives about an hour and a half from Allie with his family. This is a picture of him and one of his puppies from another litter.
Allie Meets "Pard"
In February 2016, Allie and Pard met for Valentine's Day. The two got along very well, enjoyed playing together, and had some time for romance.
Meet the Puppies
On April 19th, 2016, Allie gave birth to 10 puppies-5 males and 5 females. She has been a wonderful mom and the puppies have grown so quickly!
All puppies we raise have already had their first vet check and had their dew claws removed when they go to their new homes. They will be up to date on worming and have first shots as well. All puppies are F1b Goldendoodles (75% poodle and 25% English Goldendoodle).
To take home one of the puppies, the fee is $1,200 for males and $1,500 for females. We take non-refundable deposits of $300 to hold your puppy. Please contact us about why you would be a good candidate for one of our puppies!

Goldendoodle Hair Types
There are three main types of coats in Goldendoodles:
Wool Coat: Soft harsh texture that sheds very minimally and causes less allergic symptoms like a purebred Poodle.
Wool/Fleece Coated: Soft or silky texture that is between normal hair and the poodle coat. These dogs are generally minimal to mild shedders.
Hair Coat: Like the Golden Retriever, a soft straight hair that is moderate to heavy shedding.
While genetics are always a gamble, here are some generalities. You can have any hair type show up in any generation. But, generally, the more poodle blood, the less they will shed and the less of an allergic reaction. All dogs produce saliva, dander, and shed hair. It depends on the coat type and other factors how much shedding and how minimal the allergy symptoms. I do not guarantee your puppy will not shed, but here are some generalities.
The F1 generation (first generation Goldendoodle with one 100% Poodle parent and a 100% Golden Retriever parent). In this generation, about 50% of puppies are Wool/Fleece Coated (wild minimal to mild shedding) and about 50% have more of a hair coat or hair coat/fleece coat combination (with mild to moderate shedding). Allie (mom) is an F1 and has a wool/fleece coat and is a mild shedder. Pard (dad) is a poodle and has the minimal shedding typical of a poodle.
The F1b generation (one parent is an F1 Goldendoodle and the other parent is a poodle). This is the most consistent generation and the most likely to produce puppies with minimal to mild shedding and more mild allergy symptoms. In this generation, around 80% or more of the puppies will have a wool coat with mild to minimal shedding. The remaining puppies usually have a wool/fleece coat and have mild shedding. In rare cases, this generation can produce puppies that shed moderately. The texture of hair types is usually more consistently wool or fleece with their hair waviness ranging from straight to wavy.
All puppies will shed at various stages until their adult hair coat comes in around 6 months of age. While you can guess about how they will look as adults based on hair type as a puppy, you will not know their final hair type until they're 6 months old or older.
